Went for the day having been seduced by the wealth of things on offer in the guidebook. Purchased a Classic Pass for 24 Euros. No reduction for either EU citizens or Seniors. Knew that gardens would not be in flower at this time of year but were very disappointed to find fountains turned off and dry. The Palm House and... More

We didn't visit castle beacause we already been there. We head a walk through the gardens, been on the Gloriet and head a walk to zoo garden. It's not beautiful like it is later in the spring but still it is very nice.

A must!! Like no other, you will really live an historical visit, the palace is very good conserved, you hace to take the Grand Tour for the complete experience and spend at least an hour walking the enormous gardens in the backyard.

We visited Schonbrunn Palace on our first day. We were very lucky to have pleasant 18 degree heat. This made venturing around the palace gardens an utter delight! The palace was extremely grand! The grand tour of the palace is in depth and interesting! With a great insight into the palaces history! The highlight for me was the palace gardens... More

This was worth while. Easy to get to as the underground stops virtually out side the door. Swot up before you go as the history is not familiar to most . It's not a patch on Windsor or Buck House but non the less I enjoyed half a day here. Good for walking in the grounds too.

Absolutely beautiful place. We spent a whole day here taking in the atmosphere. A place that must be seen to be believed.

We enjoyed the 22 room audio tour of Schonbrunn Palace more than we expected to - the history of the Habsburgs is really interesting. The palace and grounds were beautiful and easily reached on the train. The apple strudel was good too!

Very impressive and a must see when visiting Vienna. Not only the palace itself but the grounds are so well kept for being such a vast area.

We arrived early and there were minimal crowds. This is a nice palace but if you've seen Versailles you will be underwhelmed. The grounds look like they would be beautiful in the summer but not appealing during this time of year.

Staying in Hietzing

Neighborhood Profile
Hietzing
Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the other half to discover the secret charms of this posh residential neighborhood. Sneak out of the gardens at Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down Hietzinger Hauptstrasse for Kaiserpavillon (Emperor’s pavilion), an Art Nouveau gem right on top of U4’s metro railtracks. At local institutions Café Dommayer and restaurant Plachutta you can mingle with residents, their families and friends. Dommayer has risen to fame since waltz king Johann Strauss and his orchestra performed there regularly. If you want to go beyond private villa gazing visit Klimtvilla and Hermesvilla. Art Nouveau genius Gustav Klimt had his last studio in a now beautifully renovated villa, which is open during spring and summer. Hermesvilla at Lainzer Tiergarten animal enclosure and nature park is a must for all romantics and fans of Empress Sissi.
